PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc talks about “dual responsibility” after Vietnam elected to UNSC

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc looks for continued support, assistance and cooperation of all member countries of the Security Council and the United Nations General Assembly to make positive contributions to the joint efforts for a green planet of sustainable peace and development

In his latest article released Saturday, PM Phuc said he is so proud as Viet Nam was elected to the United Nations Security Council on Friday night with high rate of positive votes.

Phuc wrote that this is an opportunity for Viet Nam to beef up cooperation between the United Nations and regional and sub-regional organizations, including ASEAN, thus contributing to uphold multilateralism for peace and security regionally and globally.

Winning a seat on the United Nations Security Council reflects the position and prestige of Viet Nam on the international arena and makes Viet Nam more confident to continue its cause of comprehensive, intensive and effective international integration.

As multilateralism is facing both challenges and opportunities, the United Nations and especially the United Nations Security Council need to play central role in promoting multilateralism with the involvement of all countries, including medium and small countries.

It is also an opportunity for Viet Nam to further substantiate bilateral ties with foreign countries and partners around the world, Phuc wrote.

Facts and figures show how Viet Nam has progressed since 2007 when Viet Nam was first elected to the Security Council for 2008-2009 tenure.

 

As this is the second time Viet Nam was elected to the Security Council, Phuc expressed his belief that Viet Nam is well-prepared and willing to do its utmost to successfully fulfill the role of the non-permanent membership and truly become a partner for sustainable peace.

He also expressed wish to receive support, assistance and cooperation from all members of the Security Council and the United Nations General Assembly so that Viet Nam could make positive contributions to the joint efforts of the international community for a green planet of sustainable peace and development.

At this year’s election, the United Nations General Assembly elected five new members to the Security Council, namely Viet Nam, Niger, Estonia, Tunisia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines for the 2020-2021 tenure.

Viet Nam won 192/193 positive votes, the unprecedented rate in the history of the United Nations Security Council’s elections. VGP
